Express Yourself Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Like literally I get it if someone learned super easily because they already had tons of programming experience beforehand but what I want to know is: HOW EXACTLY???? the manual doesn't explain **** and the commands page on their website is so hard to understand. so can someone just explain exactly what they did from when they first downloaded smileBASIC to being a pro. I mean..... you must have learnt it from somewhere..... Posted Edited by Godbluff

    I learned some of SmileBASIC just by experimenting (and help from this website). If you enter a command and press the question mark button on the bottom screen, you'll get a description for that command and how it can be used. This can be helpful at times.

  • #6 ✎ 170 Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements Final(?) Contest Winner I won the (possibly) final SmileBASIC Source Contest! October 2018 Programming Contest I learned from an old DSI application called Petit Computer about six years ago. Every time I felt lost I'd just load up the in-game manual. And since SmileBASIC is made by the same company, it was fairly easy to figure out everything new. Posted
  • #7 ✎ 147 ChaseCZ Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself I have Smilebasic just like 2-3 weeks or so, because it released in europe like 4 weeks ago and it isn't that hard to make something... I still haven't figured out how to make a smooth collision between player and some blocks, but that's doesn't mean i can't make something... Just go to youtube watch some tutorials (mostly by Petit Professor 3D), read some tutorial on this website, use the ? button above the keyboard and you'll be alright. But you'll first need to come up with idea, then try to make it a reality. It'll take some time to learn and make something, but you'll definitely make something great one time Posted

    Yeah, thanks! But i don't need to know it right now, i'm working on a notepad with date stamp function and i think that's not needed for it.

    You're right, since i'm new, i still don't really understand it, also i sometimes forget the basic stuff...

Express Yourself Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself idk it's just all those weird menus and commands which seem to have no explanation anywhere, i.e. the Sprite menu, the map editor thing, and all those random tricky commands like SPVAR or BGDEF etc. I was just wandering if people learnt how to use them from anywhere in particular.

  • #19 ✎ 83 seggiepants Have you tried making a Hello World program? It is a program that literally just prints out the text "Hello World!" One line of code in Smile Basic. If you can do that I can think of more skill building exercises for you. 8E7Y33G4 is my number guessing game for beginning programmers. Try reading through the code. That can be exercise two. Let me know if you have questions about the code. Posted
  • #20 ✎ 147 ChaseCZ Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself Yeah... I forgot that. Try looking at the code of other games and learn from that Posted
